Default Worried I'm doing it wrong....

So day three of raw food and we've moved on from diced boneless chicken to a chicken wing but.....nothing! Coco kind of mouths it and plays with it but doesn't seem keen to actually eat it. I took it off her as I had to go to work and didn't want to leave her unsupervised. Put it in the fridge and re introduced it at dinner time with no more success. I'm worried she'll start to sook for kibble and I don't want to jeopardize her nutrition...she won't starve will she??? In others experience is she likely to eat them eventually?? I'll give her a fresh one and try again tomorrow.

Would love some advice, thanks in advance
Cheers
Alex

Age?
Is she teething?
It took mine a day or two to tear into them, but once they get the hang of them, there's absolutely no stopping them.
It wouldn't hurt to score the skin with a very sharp knife so she can grab little bits with her front teeth & teeze/pull it.
I still deeply score drumsticks when I feed them, skin & meat.
If she's teething she may also be too sore to crunch bones right now.
